Glasgow Science CentreBack
Glasgow Science Centre
The Glasgow science centre is one of Scotland’s major tourist attractions. The centre is a charity and looks to close the gap between science and the general public. The centre looks to inspire everyone in Scotland from all different age groups.
So what does the Science centre exactly offer?
From the science mall to the Glasgow tower the centre has loads of great attractions. So, let’s look at the top activities the Science centre has to offer.
The sliver titanium sphere that sites next to the Clyde has an array of scientific exhibits from wind-powered vehicles to and my personal favourite the giant hamster wheel which resides on the third floor. The third flaw is perhaps the most interesting of all the floors and looks at how the human body works. At the same time, you are both the experimenter and the experiment. Learn about yourself and the human anatomy.
If you are interested in outer space and wonder what is actually going on out there, the Planetarium is for you. The whole of the Planetarium dome is a digital projection system, just look up and the see the solar system.
Throughout the week public shows are mixed with educational classes for school kids. And this, not a skive, as the classes follow their school curriculum. The Planetarium also shows full-length films, most notable “ back to the moon for good” which Tim Allen did the voice over for.
This is without doubt one of Glasgow’s most famous landmarks. The tower holds the Guinness world records for the tallest rotating tower in the world and is the only tower which can revolve into the wind.
The tour starts at the bottom of the tower, where the experts will tell you about the history of Glasgow and area where the tower is based. Once this is done its time to head up the tower, which takes 2.5 minutes to reach. But once you are there you get amazing views of Glasgow.
The tower actually moves in the wind and for many visitors, this is quite scary but the view at the top is certainly worth the slight swaying.
The Imax cinema lets you watch educational in 3D, allowing a more immersive experience.
Come and see the current educational classics which are showing, “ Hidden Universe” and “ Under The Sea”. You will leave brimming with knowledge and amazement.
These is one of Your Property Wizards Top Glasgow Attractions.
